KYBELLA™ is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for the reduction of submental fullness, or “double chin”, in men and women. Steve Torres, MD, personally performs every Kybella injection on his patients. Trust your face with Steve!
WHAT IS KYBELLA?
The active ingredient of KYBELLA is a man-made formulation of deoxycholic acid, a compound that occurs naturally in the human body. The function of deoxycholic acid is to absorb and eliminate fat cells, which works especially well on what is commonly called a “double chin”.
KYBELLA is a minimally invasive treatment for moderate to severe under-chin fat. It has become quite popular since its approval and introduction in early 2015.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KYBELLA AND CHIN LIPOSUCTION?
There are some very important differences between KYBELLA and chin liposuction. A good candidate for KYBELLA may not be a good candidate chin liposuction, and vice-versa. Watch our video to understand the differences and help determine which procedure is right for you:
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A KYBELLA TREATMENT?
KYBELLA™ requires between two and six in-office treatments, depending on the heaviness of the double chin and neck area. Treatments are given by Dr. Torres at Skin ‘n Skinnier La Jolla, approximately 4 weeks apart, and normally they only take about 30 minutes each.
During each visit, we first cleanse your chin and neck area. A topical anesthetic can be applied if you desire. Dr. Torres then makes a series of very small injections of KYBELLA™ below your chin. Mild redness and swelling should be expected for a couple of days.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Since KYBELLA™ actually destroys fat cells of a double chin, the results of treatment are long-lasting. This is because once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Unlike other injectable cosmetic treatments, such as Botox, no re-treatment is expected after a full treatment sequence with KYBELLA™.
HOW DO I KNOW IF KYBELLA™ IS RIGHT FOR ME?
If you’ve been struggling to rid yourself of excess chin fat, KYBELLA™ may be the right non-surgical solution for you. A double chin is a condition that often affects both men and women and can be influenced by aging, genetics, and/or weight gain.
